[HARLEQUIN][Common Lisp HyperSpec (TM)] [Previous][Up][Next] Printing Pathnames

When printer escaping is enabled, the syntax #P"..." is how a pathname is printed by write and the other functions herein described. The "..." is the namestring representation of the pathname.

When printer escaping is disabled, write writes a pathname P by writing (namestring P) instead.

For information on how the Lisp reader parses pathnames, see Section (Sharpsign P).

The following X3J13 cleanup issues, not part of the specification, apply to this section:
